Meal times can be mad times. De-stress family dinners by getting your excited youngsters involved in the cooking to keep them busy. It’s also an entertaining way for them to keep writing.
Make the letter
Write a recipe
Whose place is it?
Play ‘guess what happens next’ when reading stories together. Kids have a great imagination, and it’s amazing what they can think up!
Writing a list can be a great way for kids to use their imagination. Ask your child what they’d pack if they were going into the jungle? What might they find there, and would they need to include any special items?
Pick somewhere your child goes to a lot – like their school, or the park, or a shop – and ask them to write down directions for how to get there from your home.
